2/5/13: Somewhat Helpful Rejection

Dear Ms. Stevens,

Thank you very much for sending me your work. Unfortunately we are going to have to pass on it. The writing just isn't quite there; it should grab the reader from the start, and it doesn't. Best of luck finding representation for your novel.

Best, Rebecca

Very Nice Rejection Letter:

Thank you very much for offering us the chance to consider your material and for your patience in awaiting our response to your query.

Unfortunately, we must pass on the opportunity to represent XX. Please do not let that decision discourage you. We mold our client list from the many submissions and referrals we receive every month, and the process is both subjective and based on the direction of this agency.

I also do apologize that, due to a recent surge of submissions, I cannot send you a more detailed reply. Nevertheless, I greatly appreciate your thinking of this agency, and I wish you the best in finding the right representation for your work.

Kindest regards.
